Re: Story of Prithviraj Chauhan and the triumph of islam in india--written by myself

India never had a historian per say...the closest that comes to historian is called "barot" who are bards and keep track of generations of people in the village.

Therefore, the poet Chand Bardai (a barot) should be given status of historian and not be discounted as a storyteller
